Notes

::: Middle of the road audience quality recording for the period. Check the samples for illumination.
::: NOT the Ken & Judy Lee Port Chester Resurrection Project source. I do not know the name of the taper.
::: Warts: Taper turned off reel-to-reel between songs, so there are some late starts & I think there was 1 splice. "St.Stephen" cuts.
::: Catfish was advertised & may have opened for this late show.
::: After many hours of work, my entirely finished original textfile got zapped, so this is somewhat abbreviated & lacks most of the edit details, sorry.
::: Comments courtesy Deadlists & http://db.etree.org : "The Friend Of The Devil has different lyrics. Wake Up Lil Susie is in response to an audience request..."
::: As Jerry calls 'em at one point, the audience is a bunch of "unruly freaks"! Just havin' a good time, you'll hear 'em.
::: "Easy Wind" does not cut off at the end. Likely there are other patches or possibilities to combine this with the Ken Lee source in some way.

Line-up ::: Jerry Garcia - acoustic & electric guitars, vocals // Bob Weir - acoustic & electric guitars, vocals // Phil Lesh - electric bass, vocals // Mickey Hart - drums // Bill Kreutzmann - drums // Ron "Pigpen" McKernan - organ, percussion, vocals.

Nothing here ever commercially released to my knowledge. If I'm wrong, please advise & I'll take the offending trax offline.

CoolSonics 108 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! My copy came from the Florida Kid, who borrowed some Port Chester reel masters from a friend & kindly dubbed me some copies from the masters. ::: Corrections welcome ::: "Wishing well with a golden bell, bucket hanging clear to hell, Hell halfway twixt now and then, Stephen fill it up and lower down and lower down again." It used to be a running, not so funny joke among us Dead tape collectors that "St Stephen" was cursed. One of the greats & version after version that appeared back in the day was cut in some fashion. Anyway, plenty of other things good about this, so let yer ears have at it. Enjoy.

More recordings on the way, making up for years of slow netspeed. Kudos to Zongo for life support, Lochner for mikes & much more, & to Fast Freddie for runnin' Video Dick's Record Emporium with the bathroom office full of tape decks. Thanks to Hanwaker (few among us can keep his pace) for over 30 years of trading & friendship. Mountains of gratitude to Davmar, D.White, Sanchez, Elliot, The Florida Kid, Kloiber, Zingg, JTW, Bershaw, Boston Gold, Weeks, Dixon, Moore, Gough & SO many more for all that collecting & sharing... Royal thanks to The Man In The Palace, Doc Tinker, Brinkhoffs, Barely Eatin', Reel Master Gaule, Parrish & all the traders who housed me thru my music acquisition & travel years. Hats off to Brother Kent, Uncle Jake, Little Queenie (& her neighbor Frank) & his honor Ptomaine Thomas. Glasses raised to Byron for musical horizon expansion & much obliged to J & Thurston for keepin' my concert fires burnin' since my continental shift. Thanks to the Mods for keepin' DIME alive. Enjoy, share, give, spread peace. Yers truly, Knees
